Question about Acer Aspire Computers & Internet
Computer turns on then turns its self right back off after the acer screen comes on.i took out the battery and drained the power then hooked the ac power supply back to the pc without the battery in the unit but still the same results. turns on for a few seconds and right after the acer screen pops up it shuts back off.
Are there any error messages on the screen?
It could be a software problem or overheating. To isolate the problem, then try the following:
1. Restart the computer and tap F8 until you see the options to boot to safe mode.
2. Highlight safe mode using the arrow keys and hit enter.
If it goes in without any problem, then do a system restore.
Start > Programs > Accessories > System Tools > System Restore
Select a restore point. Make sure that it's a date when you had no problem yet.
If the computer does not go into safe mode, then it's a sure overheating issue. It just need some cleaning. Bring it to a technician to make sure that there are no defects with its fans.
If you have any questions, please drop me a line.

Hello. There is a hardware failure with the laptop not the AC charger. AC chargers have some range of protections of their own. If the power requirements of the laptop are bigger then what the charger can handle, the charger will turn off. Also other parameters can bring the charger offline. In your case, you have a problem with a small chip, the battery charge controller unit, witch regulates the amount of current required to propperly charge the battery. When this thing fails, the charging requirements for the battery are reported rong and the AC charger is forced to give more power then necesary. This results in disconnection of the AC charger ( an internal fail safe of the AC charger) and the laptop to swich back to battery power. When the laptop is turned off, it can charge the battery because the power requirements are low, having all processor, main board, hard disk etc turned off. Therefore the AC charger can handle the load. However you will need to have it checked by a service center as it is a hardware fault. Both AC charger and laptop needs that check. The charge controll circuit needs to be replaced probably. It will be a somewhat expensive repair. Don't buy any other battery untill you have the laptop checked. For more aditional info please post back. PS. Sorry for my bad english, I am from Romania, it is pretty hard for me to explain tehnical stuff in english.

I had the same thing happen when I was fiddling with the 9092 monitor refresh rate. The video circuit had a few episodes of video switching and the system shut down never to wake again. I figured it was connected to this circuit but I couldn't fix it. I bought a new one but I haven't tried to recreate the problem:-|

The laptop's AC power jack is probably damaged. All you have to do is put the fork aside :D, unsolder the old power jack and solder the new one in. If you are not good at soldering you can get it done by a qualified professional. Its a 5 minute Job and a pretty inexpensive repair.
